According to former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich, there exists a belief that former President Barack Obama is exerting influence over the Biden administration.
Gingrich articulated his statements in the context of an interview conducted on the Fox News network’s program “Hannity,” with Pete Hegseth serving as the guest host.
According to Gingrich, it is possible that Biden’s attention may be diverted from the ongoing issues faced by the country due to his prioritization of vacationing activities.
“He has a pretty decent life, and it doesn’t occur to him that all these other things that are piling up in a way that will be an absolute disaster for the Democratic Party,” he said.
“My personal guess is the driving force behind the Biden administration is Barack Obama,” he added.
“Obama is the only president since Woodrow Wilson to stay in Washington, and in Wilson’s case, he stayed because he had a severe stroke and he could not be moved.”

“So the fact that Obama is here all the time, the fact that his staff permeates, literally permeates the Biden administration, and Obama is really, really smart,” he continued.
“Whatever Biden’s problems are at being kind of slow and cognitively decaying, Obama doesn’t have any of those problem,” the former House Speaker said.
“If you watched the administration, it is much more an Obama administration than, say, the Joe Biden of 10 or 15 years ago.”
“This is a very radical, very left-wing administration deeply dedicated to policies that are close to crazy,” he concluded.
“Their electric car policy is a disaster. As President Trump said, this will destroy at least 100,000 jobs and will achieve nothing in the long run,” he added.
“Their policies, they might propose that Americans are limited to two beers a week — the kind of petty nanny state interference that most Americans will find crazy.”
The claim that Obama is effectively leading the Biden administration is not a novel observation.
According to a source, there are indications that Obama is discreetly involved in efforts to replace Joe Biden, as it is more evident that Biden’s age may hinder his chances of winning.
According to a report by Jonathan Martin of Politico, former President Obama recently convened a series of meetings with junior members of the House of Representatives. These sessions occurred at Obama’s Washington office and were accompanied by a selection of cheese and crackers.
The content of the discussion remains ambiguous, prompting inquiries over the rationale behind Obama’s involvement at this juncture, particularly given the emerging perception of Joe Biden as a potential liability.
